Note that while the sending of ETH and tokens works, you cannot change the parameters of the multisig (add owner, remove owner, change owner, change daily limit). See https://github.com/bokkypoobah/EthereumWalletMultisigTest for further information.


The standard Ethereum Wallet / Mist multisig contract does support ERC20 tokens.

Here is a transaction of a Golem Network Token (GNT) transfer from a multisig contract - tx 0x4afd4e13bc80c7a9305b77f0f62058c8700ec6c92ad0c355f667af898903866b .

The multisig contract is at 0xf3f1f928fbe5d68b776005cad5350b49b42dfdde.

From the transaction data, you can see the execute(...) multisig function call:

Function: execute(address _to, uint256 _value, bytes _data)

a74476443119a942de498590fe1f2454d7d4ac0d is the GNT contract address.

And here is the portion of the GNT transfer function call.

a9059cbb  // web3.sha3('transfer(address,uint256)').substring(0,10) = "0xa9059cbb"
000000000000000000000000550bfe4a2691175e03e058d826829c3a749b5f97 // destination address 
00000000000000000000000000000000000000000000000053444835ec580000 // new BigNumber("53444835ec580000", 16)/1e18 = 6

The user trying to execute the transaction above had a few failed attempts using their multisig account to execute this ERC20 transfer transaction due to insufficient gas. The user increased the supplied gas and the transaction executed smoothly.

  • Hey, how can you send this kind of transaction through MyEtherWallet? Do I have to write the Input Data by hand? – aviggiano Jan 8 '18 at 18:48
  • Yup, unfortunately. – The Officious BokkyPooBah Jan 9 '18 at 17:24
